Jones-Drew won't report to Jaguars minicamp
Running back seeking new contract
Running back Maurice Jones-Drew won't report to the Jaguars' mandatory minicamp, which began Tuesday without the NFL's reigning leading rusher.
Jones-Drew can be fined for each of the three workout sessions he misses and a maximum of $60,000 for the three-day minicamp.
The 27-year-old is the eighth-highest paid player at his position and wants a new contract. Adrian Peterson, 27, signed a $96 million deal in September 2011. Closer to home, Jones-Drew is the third-highest paid back in the AFC South behind Arian Foster and Chris Johnson.
Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said Monday that the team's position is that it expects players under contract to honor their deal.
